Overview

In Grandmaâ??s On the Camino, author Mary Oâ??Hara Wyman, a 72
year old grandmother from San Francisco, relates her 2010 adventures
walking 500 miles alone as a pilgrim on the Camino Frances. Her
journey takes her from St. Jean Pied de Port in France, across the
Pyrenees to Spain, then westward to the ancient spiritual destination
of Santiago de Compostela.

Through back-home reflections based on journal entries and postcards sent
to her grand daughter, Mary describes engaging encounters with pilgrims
of all ages and motivations, close-range observations of numerous animals
on the trails, and the daily tasks of finding food and a bed each evening.
Readers will gain keen insight into the physical day to day rigors facing a
walking pilgrim, as Mary endured several falls on the trails, a serious foot
injury, copious rain, mud and unseasonal cold and hot weather.

Grandmaâ??s On the Camino will inspire pilgrims and armchair readers
of any age with Maryâ??s adventures and coping mechanisms, calmness
under pressure, humorous outlook on life and truly spiritual approach
to walking the Camino Frances to Santiago de Compostela. You will
walk as a pilgrim with Mary through every word in the book.
